Wikipedia, 09-10-2016: (Nicholas Ray; b. August 7, 1911 ; d. June 16, 1979; was an American film director best known for the movie Rebel Without a Cause; also appreciated by a smaller audience of cinephiles for a large number of narrative features produced between 1947 and 1963 including Bigger Than Life, Johnny Guitar, They Live by Night, and In a Lonely Place, as well as an experimental work produced throughout the 1970s titled, We Can't Go Home Again, which was unfinished at the time of Ray's death from lung cancer; Ray's compositions within the CinemaScope frame and use of color are particularly well-regarded; he was an important influence on the French New Wave, with Jean-Luc Godard famously writing in a review of Bitter Victory, "cinema is Nicholas Ray")
